Everyone hates Call of Duty for some reason. Here are 7 reasons a lot of people love it!
"5 – Familiarity - I’m going to draw a weird comparison here, but have you ever heard of the theory that people always return to the familiar?" Familiarity breeds contempt, all I have to say on the matter.
I think people keep coming back to this game because of the switchy aming. The aiming in call of duty feels extreemly responsive. Alot of games these days try to make the controls feel "weighted" but really all that does is make aming harder and less accurate. I hope some day they get rid of "pristige" and use a more skill based ranking system
I love cod. I don't understand why so many people waste their time in cod articles when they don't even like the game. The forums are full of people claiming that they are given up on cod and moving over to battlefield. Why even go to the cod forums at all if you don't like cod?
Yeah, I enjoy CoD as well. I really don't understand the hate. That said, CoD will take a back seat to Gears 3 this coming fall/winter!
Yeah I was amazed at how much fun the gears 3 beta was. I played gears 1&2 online a little bit and thought it was OK, but the beta for 3 really surprised me.
I enjoy CoD as well. I'm not big on multiplayer (I'm not very good at it) but the campaigns are always enjoyable. I know that I never have to worry about not getting into an online game as well. I know that I could improve if I just play more.
Call of Duty is fun. Complain all you want about the silly stories or the way it's being milked. It's simple and fun to play, and that's more than can be said for a lot of shooters.
. Number 1 reason...no surprises... . I think you will see the most polished COD game yet...Number 2...60 fps and speed go hand in hand... http://youtu.be/goP-cRjXW54 Number 3...great DLC... http://youtu.be/MczyKpID2IA http://youtu.be/DWOf9DmK94Y Number 4...COD Elite... http://youtu.be/xobNcaIaQpk Number 5, 6 and 7...Activision, Sledgehammer and Infinity Ward.
There's hardly any difference between 60fps and 30fps, Our eyes can hardly see the difference, It's only when footage is played in slow-motion when you can clearly see the difference. COD DLC? It's totally over-priced, 12 pounds for a couple of maps. Look at Battlefield vietnam, it's 10 pound for 5 new maps, weapons, vehicles. It's like buying a new game. COD elite is paying for stuff you get free in other online games. Activision are greedy assholes, Infinity ward couldn't care less about it's fans and Idk Sledgehammer.
one of the main reasons I loved MW and even part 2, were those event moments that don't even involve shooting. Like escaping a sinking tanker, swimming next to submarines, or when the choppers fall out of the sky and everything goes dark. Nothing to do with killing but made for an immersive experience none the less. MW3 looks to be bringing them back.
Yeah. I know the norm is for people on forums to hate COD, but I still have a special place for it in my heart, especially with IW's Modern Warfare series. COD4 is one of my all-time favorite games and I can't just all of the sudden hate the series. Sure, I wish they would spice it up or use a new engine, but I will still play and enjoy it for what it is.
I agree with some points but not with killstreaks. Yes there is a barebones mode but no one plays it and when you do find a match you end up with a 1 bar connection. Biggest frustration for me is connection. Host has the biggest advantage in all CoD games but mostly Black Ops. I use to play SnD and do miss it but i'm playing BF:BC2 right now and loving it. Conquest is awesome.
1 reason i don't like cod: It's shit. 'same game 5' i believe it's up to.
When you get past some of the problems that COD has, it is an amazing game, never have I played a game that can keep me playing for 5 hours+ in one sitting, and it is a very good stress reliever too, had a shitty day? pop in some COD and kill some bitches.
7 reasons, 5 reasons, 10 reasons... enough already. people like what they want to... and you especially don't need to convince people to play CoD CoD is easy and fun that is why people play it. personally i am over the linear single player and never got into the MP, i chose bad company 1 over MW1 for MP for the same reasons people choose BFBC2. we are still a minority though
